The Biggest Lies Ever Told



Book Description

Beginning with the serpent’s deceiving Eve with the apple, the story of humankind has been filled with prevarication, equivocation, mendacity, dishonesty, misdirection, deceit, and deception.

This collection of falsehoods spans the gamut of reasons for, consequences of, and observations on avoiding the truth from history [Napoleon’s “History is a set of lies agreed upon”], entertainment [Bob Dylan’s “All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie”], politics [Barack Obama’s “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan.”], sports [Pete Rose’s “I can't remember - I wish I could remember the first time I bet on baseball”], and literature [Lemony Snicket’s “You and I both know that sometimes not only is it good to lie, it is necessary to lie."]
